We are often asked questions by customers like; what is lysine, or why is it used on cats? In this article we will try to clarify exactly what lysine is and how it is used especially in cats.
Lysine What is Lysine?
Lysine products contain a key ingredient, L-Lysine. L-lysine is an essential amino acid that serves as a building block for proteins. In past uses, Lysine has been used to promote muscle growth and tissue repair. It also helps the body absorb calcium, produce hormones, enzymes and disease-fighting antibodies.
Lysine Cat Why is Lysine used on Cats?
Herpes in cats are very common, but it is not the same as human herpes. Usually the first symptom of Feline herpes is conjunctivitis or eye discharge. Other symptoms occasionally include sneezing and mouth ulcers. When cats develop upper respiratory problems or feline herpes, it is treated with L-Lysine or a lysine supplement. Cats specifically benefit from Lysine as it can help improve upper respiratory symptoms as well as inflammation of the eyes caused by herpes. Lysine supplements now come in a variety of products formulated as treats, paste, powder, tablets and chews, so itís easier for cats to intake.
